UNSW honours Sydney destroyers, Gladys and Lucy

Absolute barf:

Gladys Berejiklian and Lucy Turnbull were among high achievers honoured for their contributions to the community at the 46th annual UNSW Alumni Awards.

Ms Berejiklian and Ms Turnbull were among 11 UNSW Sydney graduates chosen for awards from a group of alumni that included renowned medical minds, entrepreneurs, and champions of diversity in sport, art and engineering.

UNSW Chancellor David Gonski and UNSW President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Jacobs jointly hosted the evening at UNSW’s newly refurbished Roundhouse on Monday, with Master of Ceremonies, Jon Paparsenos, Vice-President UNSW Philanthropy, giving the welcome address.

“Tonight, we honour the incredible achievements of our growing alumni community and recognise the remarkable individuals who are utilising their education for new achievements every day,” Mr Paparsenos said.

Presenting the awards, Mr Gonski noted the pride he felt about the university’s alumni community for their commitment to changing the world. He also highlighted the difficulty of selecting just 11 outstanding alumni winners from a pool of more than 300,000 people.

In the Design and Architecture category, Ms Turnbull received an award for her longstanding achievements in cities, technological and social innovation. Accepting the award on her behalf was the inaugural recipient of the Turnbull Foundation’s Women in the Built Environment Scholarship, Dr Cathy Smith.

Around the destroyed working class suburbs of Sydney that is known as the “circle jerk”.

    A few years ago I went to the graduation ceremony at the UNSW – which was headed up by Gonski and special guest, Gail Kelly.

    Blah, Blah, Blah.

    The punch line from Gail Kelly was when she explained that the secret to success was listening to those around you and caring about your customers. She had an honorary doctorate as well, I think. These elites live in their own little bubble of delusion.

    “Presenting the awards, Mr Gonski noted the pride he felt about the university’s alumni community for their commitment to changing the world.”

    See? You don’t have to commit to change the world for the better!!!

      In this day and age you only need to be a woman with a public profile and this instantaneously qualifies you for ‘recognition’ of some sort.

  5. “The inaugural Chancellor’s Award for Exceptional Alumni Achievement was bestowed on Gladys Berejiklian for her demonstrated passion, commitment and resilience in her role as 45th Premier of NSW.”…………..I wonder if it will become like Tony Abbott’s knighthoods?

  6. – I would call it “Kissing Up”.
    – Universities now use government grants (HELPs ????) to increase their turn over. And to thank their sponsors they now giving them an award. It’s sickening …………………………

      Just more evidence of the moral bankruptcy that defines the way things work these days.
